Donald Trump tweeted that he and his wife Melania have been tested positive for COVID-19.
His campaign manager Bill Stepien and other prominent Republicans have also tested positive for the virus. Sources have said that the president has a mild fever and the first couple were doing well. Trump was taken to a Military hospital for treatment, where he will continue to work for the next few days. It is seen as a significant setback for the president as he trails in the polls against his Democratic rival Joe Biden.
